Bike Derby/Definition

Bike derby
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
A bike derby is a contest, the goal of which is to be the last person still riding their bike.

Bike derbies often involve, roughly in order of popularity:

drinking alcoholic beverages
an arena defined by the spectators' bodies
audience participation
personal injury
property damage, primarily to contestants' bikes
cheap bikes

This was the definition of bike derby according to Wikipedia. Does anyone have any comments on the current defintion? Do you agree with it? Do you have more to add?

Any views on a bike derby in general?

I think a formal definition is the antithesis of a bike derby.

Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
"Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
So many sayings, so little sig space.
